So I looked out of the window and it was sunny.... blue skies......
I headed to Scarborough, i had two objectives but alas I couldn't do both....
A walk along the front
they still have Donkey rides on the beach.
Now regular readers may remember my blog about the Scarborough Spa Orchestra the last seaside orchestra. As they were playing today I headed to the Spa complex. As the weather was sunny the concert was to be outside, much more preferable, I wanted the real experience.
The music ranged from Johannn Strauss II to Percy Grainger to light classic standard to film music and to a Carpenters melody (with the Flute as voice).
The orchestra consisted of 10 - piano, violin, cello, double bass, percussion, brass x 2, woodwind x 3.
The concert started at 11 in glorious sunshine, the first half was lovely (although alas only half full) they came back after 10-15 minute break at 12. The weather started to get cooler by the second track it started to drizzle and the fourth was concluded in TORRENTTIAL rain so they had to stop. Still I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I headed to Thornton Dale for a spot of lunch. It's a pretty touristy village.
As Nunnington Hall was close to my pub/hotel i stopped for a cuppa and a slice of Victoria sponge.
As I left I checked out the feeders, hang on that Sparrow has a mark on its cheek and a brown head! Tree Sparrow!! Then a Willow Tit flew in!! Nice end to the day.
